Michael now a Category 1 hurricane

  • The latest on TS Michael and its Alabama impact

Tropical storm watches are in effect from from the Alabama/Florida line to the Alabama/Mississippi line and from the Suwannee River to Tampa Bay.

Once Michael makes landfall, it is expected to move northeastward across the Florida panhandle into southern Georgia.

By 11 a.m. Monday, Michael's top sustained winds were around 75 miles per hour (120 kph).

The Sunshine State is bracing for another hurricane as Tropical Storm Michael prepares to slam the Gulf Coast with possible 100mph winds this week. Tropical storm winds extended out 170 miles (275 kilometers), primarily to the northeast and southeast of the storm's center.

A hurricane watch is now posted for the northeast Gulf Coast from the Alabama/Florida border to Suwanee River, Florida.

Florida's Gov. Rick Scott issued a state of emergency late Sunday in advance of Hurricane Michael for the counties in the Florida Panhandle and Big Bend region. "Residents and businesses in coastal Alabama must be vigilant and closely monitor the storm's path and be prepared for a major hurricane".

Since the storm will spend two to three days over the Gulf, "there is a real possibility that Michael will strengthen to a major hurricane before landfall", Berg wrote.

Tampa Bay has about a 40 percent chance of tropical storm-force winds within the next five days, according to the Weather Service.

In the second half, Ross Barkley rose to the occasion and made it 2-0 for his side after receiving a lay off from Olivier Giroud . However, he does like to score against the Saints, who top the Giroud versus stats with eight goals against.

The storm is moving north at 7 miles per hour and has maximum sustained winds of 75 miles per hour.

Mandatory evacuation orders were issued on Monday for residents in various areas in Gulf Country, Florida, according to a statement from county emergency officials.

A year ago saw a string of catastrophic storms batter the western Atlantic - including Irma, Maria and Hurricane Harvey - causing a record-equaling $125 billion in damage when it flooded the Houston metropolitan area. "Don't take a chance", he said. Also, there could be some storm surge from Michael, hitting already damaged beaches, Pfaff said.

Worry over Hurricane Michael has also postponed the Marjory Stoneman Douglas Public Safety Commission's highly anticipated hearings into the high school massacre scheduled for this week, as many of those on the commission live in the panhandle.

"As this system moves north into the Gulf, it is going to drag a lot of moisture up over Cuba and into South Florida".

Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, who is the Democratic nominee for governor, had planned to campaign in South Florida on Monday and Tuesday, but he said he would return to Tallahassee to help with storm preparations.

"Our state understands how serious tropical weather is and how devastating any hurricane or tropical storm can be", Scott tweeted.
